Evaluation of Vocational Programs for American Indians. A Position Paper.
Purley, Anthony F.
After a review of the literature on past and present vocational education programs conducted by the Bureau of Indian Affairs (BIA) and private industry, 5 methodologies for use in evaluating Indian vocational programs are discussed. Research needs are then suggested. First an assessment of vocational education programs offered in BIA schools--considering teacher preparation and recruitment, curriculum, school organization, and community role--is needed, as is an assessment of vocational education programs for American Indian adults. Special attention also needs to be given to research on adequacy of opportunities, training, and placement of Indians. Additional studies are needed in terms of on-the-job behavior, values, attitudes, motivation, and competencies held or needed by Indians for successful entry, persistence, and advancement in vocational training and employment.
